manufactured by RAM Mounting Systems and further enhanced by the

The KLR-5500-T is constructed of
premium-grade materials, all suitable for
use in freshwater
and saltwater environments.
Because the Toughbar®
extension increases leverage at the base of this mount, the KLR-5500-T includes
an anodized aluminum RAM diamond ball above the suction unit (as shown in image
with specifications, below) — not a high strength composite ball suitable for

loosened for positioning your GPS display in a wide variety
of positions, and locked into position with a single hand. These
couplers are manufactured of high-strength composite and are tough as nails,
easily capable of stabilizing the unit for access to function keys.

competitive suction-based mounts. This mount, when moistened and cleanly affixed

breech clip, which allow you to secure the mount in the event that the
mount is bumped or the suction becomes disengaged.
